Fight Back with Joy
by Margaret Feinberg
What if joy is better than you imagined? This cherished virtue has been wrapped in clichés, stamped on coffee mugs and sewn onto decorative pillows. Fight Back with Joy declares that joy is more than whimsy, but a weapon we can use to fight life’s greatest battles. “When we fight back with joy, we lean into the very presence of God – the One who fills us with joy, even on our most deflated days.”
Because we know many of you work full-time, we will take two weeks to complete the five days of lessons in this series . On the alternate Wednesdays our complementary teaching is by Pastor Rick Warren entitled: “The Habits of Happiness”.

Discover the Redemptive Side to Job’s Story of Suffering
Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus.
Just ask Job, the man from Uz who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this study by Lisa Harper, discover the redemptive side to Job’s story of suffering. Learn to use pain to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and remember God’s providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.
